Outline

The Ryogoku Art Festival began four years ago as a project to add another piano to the Steinway at Monnaka Tenjo Hall purchased through fundraising, and explore the possibilities for two-piano music. With a change of artistic director every year, the festival has become a celebration of two very individual pianos.
